Career Planning and Development for Students: A Pilot Study
Abstract:
Career Planning and Development for Students: A Pilot Study
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001
Author:Waddell, Janice
P.I. Institution Name:Ryerson Polytechnic University
Objective: To describe the process and impact of student participation in a student focused career planning and development program (CPDP) on student nurse outcomes. Design: Randomized control design with a pre-test, post-test design. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The intervention group consisted of second and third year nursing students who participated in the CPDP. The control group consisted of a sample of second and third year students who did not participate in the program. The study was conducted in a Metro Toronto University School of Nursing, between 1999-2001. Concepts or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: The study assessed: a) whether there are significant changes in career decision making self-efficacy following participation in a student focused CPDP, b) the degree to which students are engaged in career planning and development activities, c) student nurses’ perceptions of the benefits of a CPDP program during their academic preparation. Study results will demonstrate whether there are group differences with respect to the student nurse outcomes of career self-efficacy in making quality career decisions, and career planning activities. Student nurses’ perceptions of the benefits of a CPDP program for nursing students during their academic preparation will be discussed. Methods: The intervention (CPDP) consisted of two phases. The first phase was comprised of an introduction to the CPDP model and process and occurred at the end of the second year of the participants’ BScN program, or early in the third year of the program. The second phase of the intervention occurred in the following academic year and included two workshop sessions using the CPDP model and individual career coaching sessions. Both intervention and control groups completed a questionnaire pre-and –post phase one and two of the intervention. Focus groups were conducted separately for the intervention and control groups. Findings: Data analysis in progress. Conclusions: To be determined following data analysis completion. Implications: To be determined following data analysis completion.
